Mutt Strut is a community-wide fundraiser that raises money for the animals at Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit. These much needed funds provide for the over 2,400 animals FAMD cares for each year. Mutt Strut also promotes healthy relationships between people and their companion animals, and education about the sustainable health of pets and their people. 

Due to the heavy rains, Ford Field Park has flooded and we have made the difficult decision to make our 16th Annual Mutt Strut presented by Dearborn Family Pet Care a virtual event. We will share more info about the event, different ways you can participate, feature our wonderful sponsors and vendors, hear from staff and much more on our Facebook page!

When:  Saturday, September 25, 2021

Fundraising Prizes

We encourage all Mutt Strut participants to create a page and fundraise to support FAMD and the animals we help, as this is one of our most important fundraisers to help cover the costs of caring for the animals in our community.

Each person who registers for the event will get a 2021 Mutt Strut t-shirt.

To reward you for your efforts, the top fundraising team, top individual fundraiser as well as the largest team will each receive a prize.
